Changes and Incompletion

This month I haven't really completed many of my reading challenges. I didn't complete my semester of study. And I probably have a whole list of other things that haven't been completed. And at some point a few weeks ago, this was a huge issue. But, now... not so much. I've kind of come to terms with the fact that things have been changing pretty drastically for me and it's time to sit back and rethink.

Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis

Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy return to Narnia, and it is exactly as good as I had expected and hoped. Instead of repeating the same battles and triumphing over similar evils, they attempt to help restore the rightful king to the throne. This time, their foray into Narnia is so much shorter and their tale isn’t as long. Most of this story is, in fact, taken up by the tale of Prince Caspian, his blossoming knowledge of the “Old Narnia” and fleeing to the forests.

November 2017

This month has been incredibly reflective and weird. I feel like everything is changing and I've been reexamining what I want to do with my life. It's definitely been, as I said... interesting. I also finished my Masters of Writing which was kind of amazing!

The Horse and his Boy by C.S. Lewis

I feel like this is sort of a forgotten part of The Chronicles of Narnia series. It takes place when the four are still in power, but follows a different boy from a country across the desert. Shasta’s upbringing is less than ideal and he struggles to find compassion and love in his daily life. Yet, when he meets the Narnian Bree, they both embark on a journey across the land to save not only the four, but the land of Shasta’s birth.

The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis

I found this Narnia story a little harder to get into at the beginning. Probably because the rest of the books have got residual characters from previous books. Characters that I have already formed an attachment to. However, from the third chapter onwards, I was happily hooked and involved. And, as it turns out, these are characters and happenings that are actually integral to the story of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
